Julia Photo Book


My Julia photo book arrived last night and is the perfect birthday gift.  
I am so pleased with how it turned out! 
I know it is a bit long but there were so many sweet photos and sweet memories that had to be included...

Oh my goodness gracious! What an amazing memorial! Wow. I studied every photo on every page and there were so many i had never seen. thank you so much for sharing Julia's photo book with us!! Cliff and I both enjoyed it so much! Your narrative was SO sweet, hopeful and upbeat. You did and amazing job, Jen. I'm in awe. One line I keep thinking of was from her first birthday page that said "Today we know that we have made good decisions for you." oh my. to hear it that was put such gravity on each of the myriad of decisions you and Marc made for sweet Julia Grace. Bless you. What a sweet way for me to spend my evening, remembering, missing, loving Julia and each of you. Love you.
also enjoyed:
your family pic by the photographer in DC - i hadn't seen it!
loved seeing my picture with Julia! unforgettable!
loved the bath time picture with Syd and Isaac!!
So great to see Marc being goofy in some pictures, a few light moments to laugh.
That first smile section was so touching! The joy! I remember how hard it was for us with Ruby's colic and her first smiles and when things started to ease up for us and I could relate a teensy bit to your experience!
All the work you did for each of her monumental milestones - every month honored all the cakes, cupcakes, candles, special hats, outfits, gifts, each given a special place in her book. It must have taken you weeks to complete. And you will treasure it always.
her red dress from the one year pictures was beautiful!
Great to see Dave and Ruth and the cherry blossoms!
loved that image marc took of you and the 3 kids - did you decide to get one for your wall? you were considering a canvas when I was out in may.
miss you.
